Paula Haugerud is honored to serve as a learner experience coordinator for the CWTS, where she is responsible for the coordination of development, training logistics, and special projects for CWTS and the Kempe Center and offers support to our community stakeholders to ultimately further the greater mission of the organization.

Paula grew up in Colorado and studied psychology at the University of Colorado. She began her career with a national nonprofit organization in a variety of administrative and leadership roles serving youth-based program development and events. Later, Paula worked in multiple roles in the public school system, from teaching in the classroom to serving as program specialist providing direct vocational and transition services to young adults in the community in partnership with the State of Colorado. Every pathway of her work with stakeholders, volunteers, and youth drives her commitment to succeed. She feels great passion about working with programs that impact and enhance the community and state that she loves.

Paula lives with passion, joy, and a desire to thrive in all she does. Paula leads with a servant heart. She enjoys nothing more than getting to spend time with her family and two boys. Paula loves to be outside enjoying all that Colorado has to offer and can usually be found watching the Broncos, the Rockies, the Avs, or the Buffs!
